'Glee'? Miley Cyrus 'just can't'

Miley Cyrus was quite vocal this weekend, and not just when she was singing at the May 29 Rock in Rio music festival in Portugal.

Wearing a corset-style bodysuit that would make Lady Gaga blush, the 17-year-old introduced her song “Full Circle” at the music fest with a touching dedication.

Cyrus told the audience the song is about two people who always come back to each other, "no matter what anyone says or the bad people that try to keep you apart. It's a personal story. Surprise surprise, it’s about a Jonas brother.”

Speidi is over - at least for now

It might have been a lonely Memorial Day weekend for Spencer Pratt - his other half, Heidi Montag, is taking a hiatus from their marriage.

A rep for Montag (who also represents Pratt) confirmed to CNN Friday that the reported split is real, but added that as of now, it's just a separation.

“As you can imagine, it is crazy right now. [Montag is] trying to lay low the next couple days,” the rep said. “What I can say is that it’s a separation for now, not divorce.”

The couple have been the butt of more jokes than usual as the latest season of "The Hills" focuses on Pratt's confusing and bizarre behavior.

Casting Chronicles: James McAvoy in new 'X-Men'

But before we get to James, we have to tell you who will be joining the shockingly gaunt 50 Cent in the indie film, “Things Fall Apart”: none other than Ray Liotta, according to Variety.

The movie, directed by Mario Van Peebles, required the once-buff rapper to drop 50 pounds in order to portray a high-school football player stricken with cancer. Liotta will star opposite 50 – real name, Curtis Jackson – as the athlete’s doctor.

Moving on: James McAvoy has been cast as Charles Xavier in the “X-Men” franchise prequel, “X-Men: First Class.” In this movie, fans will see how Xavier formed the mutants into a group aiming to do good. The film already has “Kick-Ass” director Matthew Vaughn signed on to lead the feature, which is scheduled to start filming this summer, according to the L.A. Times.
